what bothers me more is my pic being banned for not showing my 'whole' face as opposed to those showin' no fvckin face at all being fine n dandy to be here.
Put something cute and fluffy in the photo and it won't get deleted....... You could claim that a pic of a 3 week old kitten was in fact you and it still won't get deleted.
Also don't make any questionable photo's "rate image" in the image page.

|I think it's a cunning tactic that chubby girls tend to use. I'm not quite sure how it works .. probably some form of parllax error/illusion .. but to me at least, with the pic sideways the person looks significantly thinner than they really are (something you realize when you turn your head).|

|Makes a change from being accused of holding your camera high I guess... what was it FGAS or something (Fat Girl Angle... something or other).|

|I always thought (seeing as how there appears little difference in the number of women who use it, regardless of size ) that the "high angle pic" was meant to show off a womans chest ( and i must say, very well it works too ) :O)|

I'm sure he wasn't...or maybe he was!
I think it was more to do with the fact that a lot of women seem to think that they need to sell themselves with pics that are taken above and go right down the cleavage...not the angle you have in your pic by any means.
I'm just thankful I havent got a 3D screen...some profiles you click on would have you ducking believe me...

|You know what's worse?|
Profile pictures that are of groups and you can't tell who the member is, pictures that are grainy, black and white and any other effects that don't represent the person fully.
I personally find it annoying that some people edit photos and put them here expecting people to think they are photography experts.
It just feels that they are hiding something. to me.

|It's yet another tool for screening out one's with no potential for me. I only date girls with upright clear photos (not airbrushed or professional). This tells me they are from this decade, naturally attractive and are trying to attract guys without neck deformities. I don't want to spend the rest of my life correcting sideways family photos / videos...|

|I think it's a chin minimisation thing myself!|

|they're not as bad as the 'oh dear you can see right down my cleavage' photos that some women bend over to take|

That's called the myspace pose ;-)

|It's the same as photos in a group so you are not sure who it is. The thing the site should ban is photos including children - some sick people get off viewing them.|

oh! not another one? go away!
why would anyone sift through profiles hoping to find kiddy pics, when they could just go to an online catalogue kiddy wear section?
no prizes for guessing what i think the site should ban!
sideways pics are a bit irritating but not everyone can work out how to turn em round, so if you're looking for someone a bit techy click on :-)

|I had one of my pics up and it stayed sideways for awhile and I did try and rotate it. It wouldnt rotate. So Im not an idiot or lazy. It was actually one of my better pics, so I left it for awhile. I took it down recently. Not because I thought it was annoying to people but because the caliber of man on this site isnt all that great anyway. The profiles say one thing and personality says another. Whatever happened to kind and decent men? Now I just read forums.|
